OVARY STIMULATION AND ITS MONITORING

The next stage is to stimulate the growth of follicles, prepared for one given period by means of medical drugs. This process is controlled by a number of blood tests and ultrasound. Previously we will tell you about the medicines, daily dosage, form and schedule of administration. Scheme of treatment called in IVF programs "Stimulation protocol" is chosen individually for you. Your "response" to the stimulation is evaluated by size of follicles and hormone levels. According to these parameters, daily dosage of stimulation drugs is adjusted and, on reaching of certain follicles dimensions we make prescription of a drug that provides final maturation of eggs. In 35-36 hours after its administration comes the next stage.

EGG RETRIEVAL

This procedure is carried out at our clinic and is an ovary puncture through vaginal wall with a thin needle under ultrasound guidance in conditions of sedation and analgesia. The procedure takes about 10-20 minutes. Resulting follicular fluid is collected and transferred by us to the laboratory where embryologists identify eggs under a microscope and take them away.

FERTILIZATION

The next step does not require your participation. Fertilization and cultivation of already fertilized eggs lasts from 3 to 6 days, depending on the recommendations of embryologist, and meanwhile we are preparing to transfer of children...

EMBRYO TRANSFER

On the day of embryo transfer, considering summary of embryologist, you and your doctor decide on the number of embryos to be transferred, and the possibility of freezing the rest for future use. Procedure itself, as a rule, does not require anaesthesia and you are fully conscious. After passing the cervix with a thin catheter, we put your kids directly into your uterine cavity. 

MONITORING RESULTS

There comes the easiest and at once the most complicated period, because before confirming pregnancy should pass at least 2 weeks and hCG test can prove it. Two long weeks of waiting…And we will be waiting together with you! And then we will wait for another 2 weeks for you to pass the ultrasonic diagnostics, if hCG test was positive, or the results or ultrasound, if you have already passed at home. And only then our IVF program will be completed!
